Handmade Holidays Blog Hop

Handmade Holidays 2014 Hop Logo

Welcome to the final day of the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! We hope you enjoyed the projects from the last 2 days! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas.

Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We've gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues.

Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can "hop" from one blog to another to check them all out.

I created a wall hanging and a gift jar using some great products for this blog hop. To start this project, I die cut the Holiday House with Elizabeth Craft Designs using three different colors of card stock.

The roof and wreath on these houses were decorated with Ice Enamels and glue. 

I distressed the edges of the house with Clearsnap Art Dauber and ColorBox Chalk ink.

 To create the base of this wall hanging, I first applied a layer of Modeling Paste to create the texture on the SmoothFoam Disc, then sprayed various colors of ColorBox Spritzers.

The sentiment was stamped with ColorBox Dye Ink and Neat & Tangled stamps. 

To make some cute embellishment hearts, I used 3D Foam Hearts and Clearsnap Designer Foils. Love these beautiful shining hearts.

To create the dimensional embellishments, I used Dodz 3D on the back of these houses and flowers. 

Here is the finished holiday wall hanging gift. Love the beautiful texture and cute little houses. 

Since I die cut three houses, one of them was pasted on this gift jar. This is a simple and quick gift idea when you need to make many holiday gifts. I hope you enjoyed my creations.
